A child is a God-given treasure (Psalm 127:3) fully capable of receiving his blessing and acceptance.
Child dedication is a Sunday-morning celebration that signifies a parent’s commitment to value and nurture that treasure in the love and grace of God. It is a rite of blessing that recognizes parental responsibility of raising children in a home influenced by Jesus where he or she can grow in faith, hope and love.
At Sanctuary we recognize the role of the church community in assisting parents with the responsibility of nurturing children in faith (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). At the dedication celebration both parents and church are invited join together to pray, care, and teach children to receive the hope we have in Jesus.
